HUD Strikes Again – Diversity Includes Criminals
Fair Housing Act Does NOT Include Criminals
The Obama administration, in all it’s liberal logic, thinks there are way too many white neighborhoods. They do not like the idea of someone working hard, earning the right to buy a house in a gated community, or live comfortably… if they are not “diverse.”
Last year, they unveiled the plan to force local municipalities to rent upscale homes through the Section 8 program. Not a lot of uproar, as the mainstream media didn’t say much. The uproar happened when the plans hit particular neighborhoods.
That wasn’t enough, however.
Yesterday, HUD released new “guidelines” designed to make people believe that the Fair Housing Act includes not allowing landlords to refuse rentals to felons, because… well, the race card. <shhh>
The Fair Housing Act doesn’t include criminals as a protected class, but the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says refusing to rent based on a criminal record is a form of racial discrimination, due to racial imbalances in the U.S. justice system.
“The Fair Housing Act prohibits both intentional housing discrimination and housing practices that have an unjustified discriminatory effect because of race, national origin, or other protected characteristics,” say HUD’s newly-released guidelines.
“Because of widespread racial and ethnic disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system, criminal history-based restrictions on access to housing are likely disproportionately to burden African-Americans and Hispanics.”
However… the government can still discriminate against felons, as it does with their Section 8 guidelines. They do not mention race when setting their guidelines, yet they throw that up in the face of hard working Americans, despite their guidelines.
So, what does this mean?
